KISS 1976: Hard Luck Woman

When I was a kid back in Azle, Texas, we didn't have a concept of "greasepaint" makeup or anything, didn't even know that stores sold such a thing. So when we discovered that we all liked KISS, we tried to invent ways to create their makeup on our own faces. The white part = toothpaste plus baby powder slapped on top. (It stung and was splotchy.) The black part = magic marker. (What a big ol' un-wash-off-able mess!)

Below is one of my all-time favorite KISS songs, from the 1976 "Rock and Roll Over" album. (Someone's little brother was always Peter Criss!)
